We were so thrilled with the location of this vacation rental. The place was exactly as advertised and pictured. The property is, quite literally, on the beach. The pools were well maintained and super clean. The views from our balcony were wonderful. The unit was dated but impeccably clean! The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star rating is that the exterior of the property is in need of some sprucing - but don't judge a book by its cover. The property owner (Mark) as well as the care takers (Mike & Lisa) were 100% accessible and extremely helpful. This was our first time to the OBX, so choosing the right place on a budget was very overwhelming. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and eat with (except the food) and the owner provided all clean linens. We have 4 children ages 15, 13, 10 & 7 and the unit was not overly crowded (although we spent most of our time on the beach, the pool or taking in the sights). I would highly recommend booking here - and we have already recommended to friends and family. We would definitely stay here again.
